Verified Patient Reviews
I saw Dr. Goodman for an annual physical, not for a cardiology consult. I was taken by the technician maybe 5 minutes after finishing my paperwork. He was great - comprehensive and thorough, friendly, had good advice - all in all I enjoyed my visit and would definitely recommend seeing him!
True to the previous reviews, I can attest the Dr. Goodman is at once warm and welcoming while knowledgeable and efficient. Though the pace in NY doctor's offices is always brisk, Dr. Goodman seemed to really listen and respond appropriately in our brief visit. I am thrilled to have found a doctor I feel comfortable with and confident in, and will definitely be returning.
I was pleasantly surprised with the time efficiency of the staff between blood work, initial EKG and then the time with Dr. Goodman. I was seen within 5 minutes of sitting down and then everything else went very quickly. Also, Dr. Goodman was great. Thorough and caring with his questions, he took all my concerns into consideration.
Great first visit ! Dr. Goodman clearly has genuine concern for his patients well being. He was both serious and personable in our first meeting. He seemed more thorough in his examination than most. He put my mind at ease about my health concern and I left his office feeling re-assured. I will be returning to take advantage of the other services his office offers. He appears to take the "integrated medicine" approach very seriously and that is very appealing to me.
He is very attentive to what you have to discuss - and cares about all his patients. I usually do not have to wait as long to see him, but he had called me a few days before to change my appointment because he had to take off for personal reasons on the originally scheduled day - which meant he had to see more people than usual the day before.
I had a phenomenal experience with Dr. Goodman and his staff. My appointment was very thorough and interactive and made me feel comfortable in his care. I will be recommending Dr. Goodman to my friends and family.
Dr. Goodman made me feel at ease right away. I am 6 months pregnant and have been having severe dizzy spells and my OB wanted to rule out any heart conditions so she referred me to a Cardiologist. He was very warm and took the time to answer my questions and put me at ease. Very highly recommended.
Dr. Goodman is a very fine person - easy to talk to - answered all my questions. He is unique as a board certified cardiologist who is also certified in Integrative Medicine. That means he looks at the whole person - and when possible tries to solve health problems through holistic methods. Dr. Goodman is a positive thinker which in turn gives me a positive attitude toward my health when I leave his office.
Would definitely recommend.
Amazing Doctor, would recommend to anyone. Nice, easy to speak to, very thorough.
My visit with Dr. Dennis Goodman was a god sent. I have been trying to find a primary care physician for over a year. I have been very disappointed by the lack of compassion, attention and professionalism displayed by many primary doctors. Dr. Dennis Goodman's office was extremely organized. His staff was professional, friendly and extremely competent. Upon meeting with Dr. Dennis Goodman for my annual check-up, I immediately felt at home. He was extremely professional, extremely knowledgeable and did not rush through the visit. He offered mounds of information that was useful for my present health concerns. He was thorough and a doctor who thinks out of the box. I will be keeping Dr. Dennis Goodman as my primary care phsycian and would highly recommend him to any patient who needs a great Cardiologist or Primary Care Physician. I would have given him more than a 5 star rating, if it were available. You are in great hands with Dr. Dennis Goodman.

At no time did I feel rushed and his reassuring nature reduced the stress that I had when the exam began. The office staff was professional and friendly. I would very highly recommend Dr. Goodman.
Came with an urgent acute situation, Dr. Goodman was able to determine and analyze my health situation to the T out of a maze of other complex issues, I'm very satisfied.

I went to Dr. Goodman for an annual physical, not for a cardiology consult. The office is efficiently run and quite modern. I spent only a few minutes in the waiting room. He does a comprehensive evaluation as part of the physical and then spends time asking about the patient's symptoms, lifestyle, and health concerns. He seemed very knowledgeable. He was compassionate. He was not in a rush. He offered clear advice.
Dr. Goodman was very accommodating, without making me feel unsure about my complaints. The only thing I would say though is that he didn't go into detail about the finding, and because he was so friendly, I forgot to be firm and ask what it was about. Must remember to address your concerns first before other off-tangent topics.
My experience with Dr. Goodman was fantastic. I was a few minutes early and was let in right on time. The nurse was so sweet and Dr. Goodman was a pleasure. You can tell he knows what he is doing and that he cares about your well-being. He gave great advice but was in no way pushy. I will definitely recommend him.
I was extraordinarily impressed with Dr.Goodman. I was pleased that I was able to see him almost immediately upon arriving for my appointment. He was thorough, interested in hearing my thoughts on what I feel I need, and is respectful and collaborative in his approach. I value his endorsement of alternative paths to achieving health in conjunction with the more traditional avenues. I would not hesitate to recommend him. In fact I will be recommending him.
I really enjoyed meeting with Dr. Goodman and believe he did a great job. I did not have to wait at all and he was very thorough with answering my questions and making sure I knew I was okay. I will definitely visit Dr. Goodman again and recommend him to anyone seeing a cardiologist!
Dr. Goodman was very knowledgeable. He spent the time with me to answer any of my questions and concerns. He had very good table side manners and was entertaining as well. Great doctor, highly recommend!
Dr. Goodman was very good. Very professional staff. He was thorough, asked all the right questions and showed a great care in what he was doing. He makes you feel very comfortable and is clearly involved in the wellbeing of his patients.
I will definitely recommend Dr. Goodman. He is very friendly and patient, spending time listen to you concerns and answer questions. I waited for less than 30 minutes, which is not bad at all. The staff are very friendly and personal as well!
This was undoubtedly my best experience with a physician, ever. Dr. Goodman immediately put me at ease, and we engaged in a comfortable conversation, thoroughly discussing all of my concerns and test results. Clearly an expert in this field, and utilizing all of the latest technologies, his warm and sincere manner was a welcome change from the "standard" routine, where one can be made to feel like they've entered a factory, rather than their physician's office. I was extremely impressed, but more than that, thrilled to have found a doctor that I plan to see for a very long time.
Dr Goodman is simply great. He is actually everything we as patients expect from a doctor!....and he is very charming too! :) His staff is also very professional and provides an attentive high-end service. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Goodman was lovely. As this was my first visit, he spent a good deal of time extensively going through my medical history. He was extremely thorough and provided thoughtful recommendations including those of a holistic approach, which I appreciate.
Excellent doctor! Explains everything thoroughly, takes time out to ask what problems you have or things you feel. This is what all doctors should aspire to become. Couldn't ask for anything more.
Very friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and overall pleasant!
outstanding physician; very personable. If you are looking for the best, look no further.
Dr. Goodman was personable and seemed genuinely interested in my personal history and family background. He listened while I spoke and I absolutely adored the fact that he examined me in his personal office instead of a cold, bare exam room. The nurse who took my blood was also phenomenal, as this is usually the worst part for me. Overall I would highly recommend this doctor!
Good first visit with Dr. Goodman. He went through each of my issues with me patiently and thoroughly. There was an issue with my initial EKG reading and he had the nurse redo the test. There was a mixup with my prescription, but it was also corrected right away.
Dr. Goodman was highly professional and very personable. All around great guy and a very thorough physician who I can see cares deeply about his patients' health. I found my new doctor.
